The Crop with Boundary menu item is used to generate a new mesh geometry object that is bounded by a polygon or region. Cropping a new mesh is supported for both meshes and grids.

 

This action will create a new surface; the original surface will be unaffected.

 

This operation creates an exact mesh intersection, cutting individual triangles or grid squares where required. If a simple filtering operation to reduce a data set is required, use the Filter Data menu item.

 

The Crop with Boundary menu item is also used to generate a "trimmed" polyline geometry object, that is bounded by a polygon or region. As with meshes and grids, cropping a polyline will generate a new polyline and the original will be unaffected. Please note that cropping polylines does not generate multiple lines, so behavior may be unexpected for polylines that intersect a boundary more than once.
